The Soviet Union of International Socialism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Yuri Vladimirovich Andropov with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.317 billion communists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leningrad. The average income tax rate is 8.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong communist economy, worth 540 trillion Roubles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,271 Roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, many friends and relatives of Yuri Vladimirovich Andropov have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. International Socialism's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

International Socialism is ranked 206,256th in the world and 56th in International Socialism for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -18.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
